Against All Odds- Preston J. Harrison

 Against All Odds

Destiny surrenders
born as an underdog,
I was raised by a giant
to learn to see through the fog.
The coast was always guarded
and sometimes would be clear
for hope , faith and dreams
could only come but very near.
I looked around and found
no one I could resemble,
none just like me truly
trying hard to be so nimble.
I kept my dream a secret
though my ambition told them all.
My mouth kept shut,
my eyes wide open
to see those before me fall.
"Not my fate ", I told myself
as others claimed they heard me say.
I declared my life my own
then out on faith I made my way.
